      • 0% chance of a 2021 jf

        My guess is no massive concerts prior to the Fall of 2021, if not the first quarter of 2022.

              • Swag....do you think Jazz Fest will make some sort of announcement ??

                I had a request for a Jazz Fest booking at my STR/Airbnb. I told them that I was confident there would be no Spring Jazz Fest, but they booked anyway. I guess they don't believe me. Maybe they will believe Quint. I'm getting tired of accepting reservations that eventually cancel.

                  At some point. I guess the question is when.

                  FWIW, we're 2-3 weeks away from when in a normal year, JF would announce the daily performer lineup.

                        • Zero chance of an April/May Fest.

                          50% chance of an October Fest. That will either go down 10%/Month, or up 10%/Month between now and June. By that I mean, between now & June, they can tentatively book some acts, and form a rough schedule. If enough progress is made with vaccinations between now & June, they might decide to move forward, and put out the schedule and sell tickets in July.

                          President Biden has an ambitious plan to do 100 Million Shots in his first 100 Days. That's April 30. If that can be achieved, and IF the number of daily vaccinations is increasing via improved management, there's a chance for October.

                          I expect they'll announce a no-go on April/May by early February, perhaps even sooner. I sincerely doubt they have even bothered to book acts, or set up any type of schedule. My hope is that they don't outright rule out October, like they had to obviously do last year. They could leave it open as a possibility. If they decide to simply say it's off until 2022, that would be a bummer, and an indication that they foresee no possibility things will be getting back to normal by early Fall. Or at least not to the point they could allow that many people to all gather at the Race Track.

                            Although I agree with everything you wrote they would have to be already working on a Fall Fest now to able to pull that off. It takes almost a full year to plan a regular Jazz Fest. Now if it was smaller, less days or with less BNA's maybe they could pull it off in a smaller time frame. As someone who lives in New Orleans and not far from the fairgrounds (I was just at Liuzza's last night) Jazz Fest is not all that high on my list of things that I cannot wait to see come back. I look more forward to going to Tip's, The Leaf, The Ace Hotel or a concert at The Civic, a busy restaurant, flying somewhere etc...... No rush on a huge festival with people coming from all over the place into our city. My guess would be 2022 (with of course Bruce playing!).

                            • Have to agree there is no chance of a normal time Jazz Fest. No acts that I know of are planning any kind of touring that would allow any booking, something that would already have to have happened given the relatively short window til late April. Why bother doing that with a good chance it might not be doable. Whether they are actively planning for something in the Fall is an unknown but even that would be a chancey move business wise given what it might cost to organize something that might not come off. It seems to me it will be 2022.

                              • I predict a scaled down Jazz Fest in Fall. Less or no mega BNA's. A lot depends on how fast the vaccine makes it's rounds and how many take it. We shall see...
